The story behind the film

Funny how what it was intended as a lens test end up as a tiny, small personal project. I wanted to test the more or less new Atlas Orion anamorphic lenses but in a more real environment. Got the idea to get a girl, a location and wrote a tiny nothing / more or less poetic paragraph so she could say something. Somehow it ended up being a three day shoot in the Catskills NY. Small / minimal crew and the Atlas Orion anamorphic lenses on a RED Epic W. Some of the shots were taken with a B camera, the Panasonic GH5s and Voigtländer lenses. So that’s the story !
